“Okay. So, just because I’m a wizard doesn’t mean…”

“Okay.  So, just because I’m a wizard doesn’t mean I don’t make mistakes.  Which brings me to the downside of my profession.  If you’re a janitor  and you fail, someone ends up with gum on their shoe.  If you’re a wizard and you fail, people can end up dead.”
–Harry Dresden (played by Paul Blackthorne)
Birds of a Feather episode of
The Dresden Files
screenplay by Peter Egan

This is one in a series of quotations.

I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years.  I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations.  I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people.  In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author.  As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say.  These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on. 

Hope you enjoy them!
